Give Peace A Chance: 42 years of inspiration through music

31 May

42 years ago, today, John Lennon sat in a hotel room in his pajamas and long hair alongside Yoko Ono and recorded his historic single ‘Give Peace A Chance’.

Now, the song still means just as much to those of us that simply refuse to accept that violence has to be a part of the world we live in. With the Iraq and Afghanistan wars still going on, and current uprisings in Libya, it’s hard to imagine that anybody is still thinking about the peace that John sang about all those years ago. Still, it’s the kind of song that still means just as much now as it did during Vietnam.

While not everyone is as firm a believer in peace as John and Yoko were, today I challenge you to live a little more peacefully. Hug your loved ones, smile at a stranger and help someone you don’t know just because they need it. We might not be able to end suffering today, but love and peace start with the small things. After all, WAR IS OVER! If you want it.
